Eight of her children are already grown and the three youngest ones (ages 13, 11, and 8) still live with her and attend school. Her husband works as a security guard.

In addition, Rosita has a small shop in her home where she clothes. She says that she receives orders from her customers. Rosita works every day, extending credit to her customers and collecting payment every 15 days. She buys her merchandise in Guayaquil as needed.
